Our city’s two largest immigrant populations form a beautiful union in one uniquely San Francisco treat: The Asian burrito. Like the classic Mission staple, most of these foil-wrapped gut bombs use rice and a flour tortilla as a canvas for flavors, but the similarities to taqueria fare stop there. Here are four great Asian burritos that are worth checking off your to-eat list.

The Korean and Chinese owners of this SoMa diner infuse the flavors of home into classic American fare. Exhibit A: The spicy pork kimchi burrito, which hides an explosion of flavorful ingredients under a flour tortilla wrap: Kimchi fried jasmine rice, 24-hour spicy marinated pork butt, kiwi salsa, julienne cucumber, mung bean sprouts, and sour cream.
